The 13th-century hammam al-Mudhaffar in the Old City of Ta’izz is one of the oldest in Yemen. The project will rehabilitate and restore this hammam, a site embodying important social values for the community and a key location for rebuilding community resilience. It will also establish conservation guidelines for the protection of the Old City of Ta’izz, which will be critical for the city's post-conflict recovery.
